Too many baguettes!

We had a big family lunch yesterday and I’ve ended up with 4 really large white baguettes to use up. We’re having them pizza style tonight but wondering if anyone had any other inspiration so they don’t go to waste?

Any room in the freezer?

Unfortunately not...that’s full of the chilli and pulled pork leftovers!

Put them in the freezer to use as garlic bread at a later date.

Or leave them to go state an blitz them for bread crumbs

or make bread and butter pudding

get the pulled pork out and use that on them as open sandwich😁

Tostadas for breakfast.

Feed them to the ducks like Dick and Angel did last night.

Alternatively they freeze really well, just chop them to size.

We had the pulled pork yesterday with them so was trying to avoid repetition but think I’ll go for it anyway and blitz the rest. Thanks all!

I made old fashioned Bread pudding with a glut of French bread last week. It worked really well (and was lovely!)

Leftover baguettes make the best french toast, even when quite stale
